The UCLA International Physician Observership Program is an informal observational experience that enables individuals to learn procedures, as well as to observe patient rounds and teaching conferences. Federal regulations prevent observers from having patient care responsibilities or involvement in any form of volunteer research.
International Physician Observerships are coordinated through the Center for World Health and organized on a case-by case basis dependent on the availability of resources within the requested department.
